LAS VEGAs (AP) - The Las Vegas City Council has ordered staff members to research the possibility of allowing medical marijuana dispensaries within city limits.

The measure was approved 5-2 at a City Council meeting Wednesday, with council members Lois Tarkanian and Stavros Anthony dissenting.

Dispensaries are not allowed under a six-month moratorium that expires in March, but Wednesday's vote allows the council to revisit the issue.

Nevada voters approved medical marijuana in 2000, but that law provided no legal way for patients to obtain the drug except to grow it themselves.

Lawmakers passed a law in 2013 that sets up a framework for distributing medical marijuana, although it allows cities and counties to impose moratoriums.
